in 2008 i was sent to a drug program while i was there a female counselor requested that i have sex with her. i told her no and a few days later she appraoched me again. And told me if I dont have sex with her she will see to it that i go back to jail. So I had sex with her and after that she told me that I'm her man and she better not find out about no other female. I later found out she had a std (HPV). i was sent back to jail and now i'm home she has contacted me and we was talking but once i found out that she no longer works at the drug orgram and can't get me arrested I broke it off with her can I sue her and the drug program?!
You should immediately contact a personal injury attorney in CT. In Texas, we would pursue a civil ce against the counselor and treatment center for Sexual Exploitation for having sex with a patient.

It sounds like you have a cause of action under Federal Law: 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In order for your action to be heard in federal court under Section 1983, you must be able to show that the defendant(s), at the time the claims alleged in the complaint, were acting under the authority or color of state law. This generally means that the person is a state official, a state employee, or someone who was acting in the name of the state under authority granted by the state, county, city, or other non-federal government entity.
A possible problem with your case is the Statute of Limitations. Since the statute contains none, the state statute is borrowed in each jurisdiction. It's possible that it may have run already, but there may be facts which might make it still possible to bring suit. Since attorneys are granted attorney's fees as part of the action, you should be able to get some interested civil rights attorney in your area to meet with you about it and hear out your facts.
